Grayson Hobby Tips
For easier water landings and take-off, keep the CG at 5-10mm back of the manuals recommendations (experienced pilots only)
Only use a 2220 mAh 11.1v battery, the plane and elctrionics are dedsinged for this motor, anything larger will throw off the CG making the plane hard to balance which will result in a crash.
By far the best price for this model! Grayson's site is easy to navigate from shopping to checkout. Their 'How To' videos offer useful tips, though this Catalina model is rather straightforward. Balance the model with a tendency toward its leading edge since it tends to kite if not so favored. (Posted on 7/11/2016)

Review by Harold H. Hearon
I bought this plane at W.R.A.M. show 2 years ago. Boy it is a niece flyer! If u don,t have a pond to fly from just set it on the grass & take off. U should remove water rudder first mine broke off. No problem air rudder has plenty of force to control on water or grass. Love DYNAM planes!!! (Posted on 6/29/2013)

I live on a lake and this plane flys absolutely great. It is an easy build, stable flier and very durable. I have incurred no damage to the plane after several bad landings. Takes a licking and keeps on ticking. (Posted on 6/15/2013)

Easy to assemble. On maiden flight the elevator control horn broke at the linkage. The plane went into a flat spin and crashed into the water. Minor, repairable damage. The rudder control horn was also broken. The metal pushrod connector must have been over tightened at the factory weakening the plastic horn causing failure. The ailerons have a much more substantial control horn. (Posted on 5/21/2012)
